Publisher's Summary

Dr. Bill Brockton is in the middle of a nuclear-terrorism disaster drill when he receives an urgent call from the nearby town of Oak Ridge - better known as Atomic City, home of the Bomb, and the key site for the Manhattan Project during World War II. Although more than sixty years have passed, could repercussions from that dangerous time still be felt today?

Jefferson Bass is the writing team of world-renowned forensic anthropologist Dr. Bill Bass and acclaimed journalist Jon Jefferson. They have combined their talents on several New York Times best-sellers. A thrilling tale of suspense, Bones of Betrayal shows why Kathy Reichs praises Bass and Jefferson's "terrific forensic detail" and calls them "the real deal."

Excellent read

While this book may not be a "10" in comparison to the others by the same author(s) it is still far and above the rest of the others out there. I deal with forensic science every day and these guys have hit the nail on the head every time. Well worth the time AND the credit.

Good story and narration!

Only down side is that the first few body farm books are not available if you wanted to follow the whole series.

Gory

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I'm not sure it could have been a 4 or 5 star experience. The story just didn't catch my attention.

What could Jefferson Bass have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I would have enjoyed more character development and less gore.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I'm sure it does. It just wasn't to my taste.

Alright

I like this series, but this one wasn't as good as the other ones. History of Oak Ridge is quite interesting though.

Oakridge TN - Ever the Mysteries

If you could sum up Bones of Betrayal in three words, what would they be?

Authentic ... Excellent research... Local flavor (not hillbilly)... Plot not of conspiracy theorists - right combination of down-to-earth and educated guesses at what we will never know about Oakridge.

Which character – as performed by Tom Stechschulte – was your favorite?

Lead and elderly Beatrice

A history/textbook- Definately NOT a thriller

If I wanted a history lesson or wanted to do research I would go to the library reference section. These guys may be excellent forensic investigators but are definitely not mystery/thriller writers. I deleted the book from my MP3 player about 80% of the way through it. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
